Groundcover Roses Are Not So "easy" - Knowledgebase Question

Sleepy Hollow, NY
Question by cfsalerni

Being a beginning gardener, I purchased 9 groundcover rose plants because they are supposed to be the "easy-care" rose and planted them this past spring 5 ft apart as instructed by my nursery. They were full of blooms at that time, however now I have already lost 2 plants and the blooms are few on the rest of them. I water them often and they are in a sunny area. Any suggestions about what I could be doing wrong? Also, what should I do this winter with these plants?

Thank you for your help.
